The 2013 GRAMMY Awards nominations have been announced last night. And Justin Bieber is not in the list of the nominees. See full list.
Justin has been vocal on his desire to win a Grammy. Working hard on new music and even releasing material that competes with current artists, it is a shocker that he wasn’t nominated in a major category. Add insult to injury, Carly Rae Jepsen has two Grammy nominations and she was introduced to the fans by Justin. 🙁
Beliebers were not happy, and so is Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun — he shares his thoughts in a series of critical tweets after the nods were announced.
“first…congrats to @carlyraejepsen. thought u deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. so proud of u.”
“second….this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. the hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over… this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.”
“so to all those nominated…you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB.
“To his fans…looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT
“I got a lot more I can say but for now….Im gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ. life is long, with many ups and downs, but we get to keep going, everyday brings a new opportunity. NOTHING GREAT EVER CAME EASY.”
